During each trip, we take plenty of underwater pictures, which you will receive as a present at the end at no additional cost. This way you can share the memories of your marine adventures in Okinawa with your family and friends!
A dive trip to Cape Hedo starts with a long drive to the very north of the island along Route 58, which, with its stunning beauty, eclipses those winding roads by the sea shown in luxury car commercials. Once you enter the water, you are immediately stunned by the beauty of the corals and the vertical drop-offs which lead into the abyss deep below. The marine life is equally spectacular and, as one boat captain puts it, "here you are a part of the food chain". Possibly the main attraction of the area is the Hedo dome, which is an underwater cave that gradually gets shallower the further you penetrate, until you eventually surface in an air dome in complete darkness.
